They say use a Texas Rig on a soft plastic worm for the ultimate bass bait, but I did this my last two trips out and caught a total of like 5 fish over the 2 days. I put on a simple orange Spinnerbait today and came out with 13 catches within 4-5 hours.

What kind of bait did you use when you used to fish? It's so hard to get live bait around here except nightcrawlers.
I always take 2 rods. One for live jumbo shiners (let them do all the work while I enjoy the view). And one for "plugging" if I feel like working at it.

I have good luck in deep water with plastic worms on a weedless hook with a bullet sinker that can slide about a foot before it hits a little crimped lead makes a little click. That texas rig doesn't look like it would stay weedless long.

but i prefer top water plugs. My #1 favorite is a devilhorse.

something about that little guy just pisses a bass off.
